Spiritual Direction II
Spiritual direction is a method for helping people to develop their relationship with God. But in order for that to happen, a spiritual directee must “feel safe” enough to risk within the context of engaging with a spiritual director. At Right On Mission spiritual direction refers to a tender form of evangelistic outreach that is not formulaic or programmed, but rather is intimate, patient and empathic. In this course students engage a spiritual directee as students themselves learn about the structure of building trust, facing truth, expressing empathy, of taking responsibility, and of engaging in the act of receiving the gift of faith from God.
